Jackson County Flood Relief

Flood concerns have plagued parts of Jackson County for quite some time now and supervisors are working towards a solution.
They’re working with the state of Mississippi and Gulf Regional Planning to apply for a grant to address the flood and drainage issues in east Jackson County. Target areas for improvement include portions of Pascagoula, Moss Point and Escatawpa.
District 1 Supervisor Barry Cumbest said that local governments will develop project proposals based on unmet recovery needs from Hurricane Isaac and other community objectives, and then the state will select where to issue the grants.
